Delhi, I Love You is an independent socio-cultural movement of love in the city. A heady mixture of history, environment, art, music and social initiatives, the movement is aimed at celebrating the city through an extensive programming of collaborative projects.
As the first showers bless the city against the heat, our painter Swen Simon sways his spray cans and gives a makeover to the MCD East garbage trucks. These trucks travel all year long collecting Delhi's waste and keep the city clean!
At Delhi I Love You we decided to celebrate their work by painting this mural on a truck.
INSTAMEET IN KHIRKEE
Xplorience and 'Delhi, I Love You' hosted the #InstameetDilli at Khirki Village.
On the 31st of January, 105 Instagrammers met at the Satpula Dam, (14th century monument in Khirkee) and set out to explore the Khirkee Mosque, local neighbourhood and then ended up at the experimental art studio KHOJ.
With Delhi's biggest shopping malls right across the road, this urban village makes for an interesting paradox in terms of the community, built architecture and the collective aspirations. The neighbourhood has seen major change over the years both culturally and physically. From being a farmland in the past, the area today stands as a true cosmopolitan neighbourhood. The neighbourhood houses14th century architecture and 21st century’s cutting edge Contemporary Art within a square mile.
